Do orgasms use serotonin?
    #843415 - 08/26/02 04:51 AM (16 years, 1 month ago)

Do orgasms use serotonin like ecstacy?

When you're done cumming, are your serotonin cells a little depleted? If so, is it bad for you brain to cum all of the time?

Doesn't seem too likely, but I wonder how much is used during an orgasm.

I'm fairly sure it's dopamine that is released, not serotonin. Dopamine is the "immediate response" chemical in your brain for pleasure, whereas serotonin is responsible for overall mood.

But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.

So it uses dopamine, not serotonin, huh?

Sounds right. If anyone can find out for sure, i'd like to know!

Endorphins, oxytocin, Dopamine, Serotonin... many of the chemicals your brain produces are released during climax

Yes, it is involved.

Interestingly, serotonin is more likely to INHIBIT orgasm (makes it more difficult to cum).

...the whole experience is (and is as) a profound piece of knowledge.  It is an indellible experience; it is forever known.  I have known myself in a way I doubt I would have ever occurred except as it did.

Smith, P.  Bull. Menninger Clinic (1959) 23:20-27; p. 27.

...most subjects find the experience valuable, some find it frightening, and many say that is it uniquely lovely.
